a little bit to the right, sometimes a little bit to the left. but they are coming in as obama democrats into the senate and he's going to have some more forceful people in places like wisconsin, where you have a tammy baldwin replacing the much older -- her core is pretty liberal, but not a champion for liberal causes. maize hirono replacing daniel akaka in hawaii. warren replacing scott brown, what a change from a moderate republican to a very liberal, consumer-focused democrat. and murphy in connecticut replacing joe lieberman. very moderate guy, often voted with republicans. chris murphy, not so much. >> i was up with dukakis and he's working with a cause i help, helping people get legal protection for medical situations. and he was killed for being a liberal. i don't think he can run those kind of campaigns against democrats and say, oh, he's a liberal, that's it, end of argument, you know. >> isn't that part of it, chris? they were apologizing for it all the time. that doesn't really get you anywhere. i think the important thing, when you talk about what's happening on the hill is
tonight that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for defense or any other post, there will be an immediate political question for the democrats as to what happens to his u.s. senate seat in massachusetts. senator kerry had mostly been talked about as a potential replacement for secretary of state hillary clinton. the post reporting tonight that that nomination for secretary of state is instead almost certain to go to united nations ambassador susan rice. republicans tried to make into a scandal susan rice's comments after the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. her comments that the attack was thought to be linked to islamist protests rather than an organized terroris
of the problem. for him suggesting how we fix our fiscal problems is not going to resinate with obama at this point. >> no, but he tries to look like he's rising above. >> but lloyd is right, he's a smart guy, knows how to run a business, knows what the private sector and growth could help all of our fiscal problems and he's right about this. but i don't know how far he gets with it because he's lloyd blankfein of goldman sachs. but becky's got it here. you're rising above. obama seeking $1.6 trillion, you say that's his opening bid. >> because this is double when talks had broken off. $800 million in tax -- the revenue increases. we want $4 trillion -- >> so it was $3.2 trillion to $800 billion, that was 4 to 1. his opening bid is 1 1/2 to 1. >> the final negotiation should get somewhere between $1 trillion to 1.2 trillion in tax increases, revenue increases. >> $2.8 trillion in spending cuts. >> all right. if you -- if you -- >> you can't look at me anymore. >> i can't look at you. because i'm wondering it's on his right year, what does that mean -- i don't know. i could never keep
. >> all right. also in "newsweek," the question about whether president obama's the lucky general or master of the game and explain to us the focus of the story. >> sort of moving from the unlucky general -- >> yes, who knew that generals wither going to be such an issue this week. really examines that charge in a sense that obama's always been about luck. he even became a senator in illinois out of luck because his opponent was mad in scandal. there have been many times when it seems as if obama has been saved by the gaunt. he was in a bad trajectory after the debate and hurricane sandy happened and suddenly he was thrust into a very presidential spotlight that made him look better. but what concludes at the end, yes, he has had elements of luck in his career, but this is really about opportunity meeting preparation. and you have to make your luck, you know. willing to be lucky. obama is very, very brilliant, i think, at making his own luck by preparation and as you saw that with osama bin laden, that was long, long in the preparation. long in the preparation. and as we saw in th
without any political weighing in on any side. >> all right. more to come on this. thank you both very much. >> thank you. >>> up next, more on the petraeus affair and the political battle over the obama administration's handling of the attack on benghazi. we'll get reaction here from the man leading the charge against the administration and against ambassador susan rice, senator lindsey graham. >>> later, fallout from the campaign after mitt romney's surprising comments this week and the future of the republican party. our roundtable weighs in on that. tom friedman and andrea mitchell will rejoin the conversation. plus, republican congressman raul labrador, former white house chief of staff for bill clinton john podesta, and gop strategist mike murphy, ahead here on "meet the press." >>> "meet the press" is brought to you by chevron. we may have more in common than you think. you can learn more at you think. you c[ male announcer ] this is bob, a regular guy with an irregular heartbeat. the usual, bob? not today.

're about to plummet. it's billionaire warren buffett. he says as long as president obama holds firm on the wealthiest americans paying more taxes, we can just go on right over that fiscal cliff and we will not dive back into recession. how do i know this? because poppy harlow knows this. she sat down for the exclusive interview. you have the greatest access to warren. every time there's news, you seem to get it. i was looking at your interview earlier. he's very candid with you about this. this doesn't look like it's for political gain in any way. we're past the election. it's incredible what he said. >> it really surprised me. i can't think of another big-named ceo out there who feels this way about the fiscal cliff. they're all saying do not go over it, we'll plunging into recession. that's what the congressional budget office says. but buffett does want an agreement in washington. he's not saying we can go over the cliff, we'll be fine. but he's saying if we have to, we will. the president needs to take a hard line on these negotiations with republicans. he says, we nparty. here'
. >> all right. but let me go back to one other thing. are you saying -- you've been in the foreign service. you've been an ambassador. you're saying that president obama will really not take a side here? he will not take a position here? i have not heard him on the subject of hamas. he has criticized them. but i haven't heard him really bear down, it's a terrorist thug group. and do you think that he doesn't get the egyptians that are playing footsie with hamas? the egyptian prime minister, the number two guy was in gaza today with the prime minister of hamas, or whatever he's called. do you think obama doesn't get that? you really think he's going to try to play both sides against the middle? >> no, i -- look, he does get it. he talked to the israeli prime minister. i have confidence that the americans understand that israel cannot tolerate these types of missile attacks. and for all intents and purposes i suspect that the administration gave the israelis a green light. but of course they're concerned, as the israelis are, over what may happen if they in effect cause the egyptians to act
as if it was capital gains. that's my point. >> right. i agree. >> well, maria, it's an important point. if you think about what president obama it talked about with the buffet ettebuffett rul seen difference between investment income and earned income every day, average income for workers, it's gotten so -- the gap is so big taxes are unfair. he's talking about closing that. i i think we'll see two steps in this process. easy things done quickly and then a much broader effort to try to tackle the deficit over time. i don't think that's going to happen in the next two or three months. over the next six to nine months let's hope something significant is done to tackle the deficit over time but three things have to be on the table. more revenue, medicare, defense, or we'll not make much of a difference. >> we can't leave this conversation without naming the 40%, some people say 49% of the people who pay no income tax. should they pay something? >> well, it's complicated. >> it's complicated. >> they have to do something with sales tax or state taxes. i do think it's great if we have a system where ever
, climate change. >> ben gotti. >> and benghazi. >> i thought it was all right. they covered most of the principle stories of the day or week. wi us most struck by the difference in president obama himself. this was a more confident, relaxed, even assertive president or person than we had seen before. and he staked out his position on taxes. and, then, of course, he rolled it back. >> he was impassioned in his defense of susan rice, something we rarely see from the president. >> right. so winning another four years will do that for you. let's contrast with the loser of the election. that's mitt romney. he hasn't given any interviews or offered any positive forward statements. instead he did a conference call with donors and people were able to listen in and romney was quoted at not directly saying that president obama gave gifts to women, gays, and free contraceptives was very popular with young women. is romney really getting beat up by the press because all he has are these comments that made him look bitter? >> well, he made them. >> like the 47%. >> yeah. it reinforces that 47
tongue. the college age daughters of many of my friends voted for obama because they were completely turned off by the knee neanderthal comments like the suggestion of legitimate rape. so on one hand some of the far right saying they're right and plowed of their stance and others now saying they would have liked to have cut off somebody's tongue if they say this again. i just want to see where it goes and if there are more moderate voiceses that can bring balance to a party that seems out of control. thank you both for your time this evening. >>> coming up, you know the phrase. and you love the phrase. >> fired up! ready to go! >> who knew there was an incredible story behind it? the woman who gave the president his rallying cry joins us next. . i have a cold... i took dayquil, but i still have a runny nose.

obama is going to look at his legacy and looking at markets. he has a terrific opportunity right here and right now to embrace small business, get the markets growing again and really do a lot for his legacy in the long run. rick: simon, americans do seem to want to see a certain level of cooperation between the parties. you know, but this is a president who has not really shown a willingness to reach across the aisle. now in his second term does that change? >> well, i don't agree with the first statement but i think that he has made it clear from his statements of the last few days that he expects to work with john boehner and republicans and mitch mcconnell in the senate to try to, you know, tackle a few big things. i think one of the things my, the other guest said, which is just fallacious and wrong and shouldn't be repeated is that the idea that the raising rates on people over $250,000 is going to hit a majority of small business owners. >> simon, y a small business. you're a policy wonk. >> you keep saying it doesn't make it true. 97% of small business owners will be exempt fr
to be willing to let the tax cuts skpiefrmt is that the right strategy here? >> well, it depends where you're trying to get. i think -- i happen to agree with president obama about where he is substantively in terms of what he needs to do to get an effect ivg program as far as our long term tra jektly. i think some of his tactics, it's very hard if you're not in the room to know what to do tactically but what he says to me is different than what you said. he said i have an objective. we cannot get there with tax expenditures. >> with the tax reduxes. >> right. if it meets with the long-term fiscal trajectory, you can get ourselves in a much better place for the long term and you can significantly improve long range terms. you put all that together. what he then said is i'm willing to sit with people and compromise to find common ground. it's sort of what he says but not quite. he says beall have to work together if we're going to meet that objective. >> what do you guess? is he playing too hard ball with the republicans or is there room for compromise? >> i think he shouldn't focus at all
to an eagerness or willingness to engage or become involved militarily in that conflict. >> all right, ben. in jerusalem this morning. thanks. >>> coming up later, soledad will be speaking to israel's deputy foreign minister. that's in our 7:00 hour. >>> here at home, president obama will have the four top leaders of congress over to the white house today to begin talks on avoiding the fiscal cliff, which could plunge the u.s. economy back into a recession. both side say there is room for compromise, but at the same time, it appears democrats and republicans may have dug in on their long-held positions concerning tax hikes and spending cuts. jill doherty is in our washington bureau. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> jill, both sides have said they are optimistic about a deal here. they're also not budging on some key issues. >> yeah, i mean, there is some room around the edges, but essentially, and this is the the opening gambit, of course. they're both talking about taxes. the president saying -- and revenue. the president saying that he wants more revenue from the wealthiest ameri

this morning that he did on friday afternoon. i'll ask it to you right now. >> absolutely, i am. here's why. two reasons. they're the two men that head their respective parties. president obama doesn't have another election to undergo. and so he's removed from the weight of addressing entitlement reform which we must do. so the very far left can't pull him back from doing that. and then you have mr. boehner that i think we democrats should be thankful is head of the house of representatives who almost came to a grand bargain two summers ago with the president. now he's heading a party that's a bit chastised by not appearing modern and enough alike in this last election by the electorate. i think if these two men, particularly if they take the template of the bowles/simpson commission of having both revenues and entitlement reform and spending cuts, can come to a bargain to do that. not to do it, you know as well as i do, carl. that means by mid-march when that debt ceiling is hit, because we can't move the money anymore in treasury, we will have a broken american dream. they've got to do th
